Analysis of Learning in the Case of a Teaching on Heat and Temperature.
In the domain of research on physics education, results on students' conceptions show difficulties in physics learning. This paper aims to propose theoretical elements to interpret such learning difficulties related to physics teaching in the case of heat and temperature. Sections in this paper include: (1) Introduction; (2) Epistemological analysis of the evolution of physics; (3) The learner's modeling of the physical world; (4) Elaboration of students' knowledge structure; (5) Structure of physics knowledge to be taught; and (6) Evolution of students' knowledge structure with teaching.
